Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi believes the national team can defeat any team in the shortest format of the game. He further added the current squad can summon the spirit of 2009 and win the T20 World Cup in the UAE.
The upcoming edition of the World Cup will witness Pakistan playing against India on October 24. Afridi is confident about his team’s chances in the ICC event.
“We had that issue of the Sri Lanka attacks on our minds,” Afridi was quoted as saying by India Today.
“The whole nation was disappointed and frustrated, so that win was very much needed. The win gave the whole nation happiness and some unforgettable moments. This is Pakistan cricket for you, never ever a dull day,” added Afridi ruefully.
Afridi opined that Pakistan are a dangerous side and can beat any team.
“Pakistan can surprise any team in the world. Rule them out at your peril. Pakistan gave the best entertainment in the first T20 World Cup,” insists Afridi.
